Rishi Kapoor's family and fans are celebrating his 68th birth anniversary today. While the actor is no more fans continue to remember him through his movies, dancing, and onstage performances. Incidentally, Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor belong to two different generations. Moreover, they have a very different acting style. Nevertheless, when this father-son duo came on the stage together at the IIFA 2012, the audience could not stop themselves from hooting and clapping.
Incidentally, Neetu Singh Kapoor was in the audience looking at her husband and son perform together. She looked happy, surprised, and in awe of both of them. The song -Om Shanti Om on which Rishi and Ranbir performed is from Karz which was a blockbuster movie of 1980. Both Ranbir Kapoor and Rishiji are wearing the typical silver jackets with Monty written on the back almost similar to the one that Rishi Kapoor wore in the original song.
When this video resurfaced today on social media, it brought smiles on the faces of many.
